XXX MUNICIPAL OFFICKKS 



1876. 



The City of Chicago was organized under the general incorporation act in 
April, 1875, and consequently no election was held in November, 1875; but the per- 
sons then in office held over until May, 1876. Under the new law the city was di- 
vided into eighteen wards. 

Mayor— MONROE HEATH, *H. D. COLVIN, *THOMAS HOYNE. 
City Clerk— CASPAR BUTZ. 
City Attorney— R. S. TUTHILL. 
City Treasurer— CLINTON BRIGGS. 

ALDERMEN. 

First Ward— John T. McAuley, D. K. Pearsons. 

Second Ward — Jacob Rosenberg Addison Ballard 

Third Ward — John L. Thompson, Wm. Aldrich. 

Fourth Ward — John W. Stewart, James H. Gilbert. 

Fifth Ward — Fred Sommer, Mark Sheridan. 

Sixth Ward~E. F. CuUerton, Fred Lodding. 

Seventh Ward — Jas. H. Hildreth, fChas. Tiiniow, Henry Kerber. 

Eighth Ward — Frank Lawler, James O'Brien. 

Ninth Ward— John M. Van Osdel, Jacob Beidler. 

Tenth Ward— Geo. E. White, Andrew F. Smith. 

Eleventh Ward—A. G. Throop, J. G. Briggs. 

Twelfth Ward— Jas. T. Rawleigh, S. H. McCrea. 

Thirteenth Ward- Wm. Wheeler, S. E. Cleveland. 

Fourteenth Ward — John Baumgarten, M. Ryan 

Fifteenth Ward— A. W. Waldo, Frank Niesen. 

Sixteenth Ward — Frank Linsenbarth, Jacob Lengacher. 

Seventeenth Ward — M. Sweeney, David Murphy. 

Eighteenth Ward — Jas. A. Kirk, Jacob Boser. 



*NoTB.— The order passed by the City Council, providing- for an election for city oflScerfc 
under the (new) general incorporation act, omitted all reference to the oflRce of Mayor. Not- 
withstanding this omission, and the apparent absence of any authority, a popular vote was 
taken for Mayor at the election, and Thomas Hoyne received 33,064 votes, 819 scattering. 

The canvass of the returns being made to the Council, the vote given for Mayor was disre- 
garded; but the new Council, at its first meeting, decided to canvass the returns, and, having 
done so, declared Mr. Hoyne duly elected Mayor, 

Mr. Colvin, the incumbent, then declining to yield possession of his oflSce on the plea that he 
was entitled to "hold over" under the law, a reference was had to the courts of law, resulting in 
the virtual failure of each of the contestants to sustain his position. 

In consequence, a special election for Mayor was ordered by the Council, which was held 
July 12, 1876, at which Monroe Heath was duly elected. 

tChas. Tarnow was elected to fill a vacancy caused by the resignation of J. H. Hildretb.

of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith, without 
my approval, an ordinance granting permis

[1902 



sion and authority to John J. Dunn, bis 
heirs and assigns, to construct and maintain 
a railway switch track from a point on the 
line of elevation of the roadbed of the Lake 
Shore and Michigan Southern Railway Com- 
pany south of Fifty-second street; thence in 
a northeasterly direction crossing an alley 
and the stub-end of Fifty-second street to a 
point on the north line of Fifty-second street, 
for the reason that the starting point of the 
switch track is too indefinite. For the further 
reason that the authority is granted to oper- 
ate cars upon this switch track, not only 
with steam, but with any "other suitable 
power." Moreover, the switch track neces- 
sitates the construction of a subway in an 
alley adjoining the railroad and in the stub- 
end of Fifty-second street. I do not think 
the proper provisions are made to guard the 
city's interests in this and other particulars. 

Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harbison, 

3 fail or. 

Aid. Jackson moved to reconsider the vote 
by which the ordinance referred to in the veto 
message of His Honor, the Mayor, was 
passed.

the contrary notwithstanding.

April 7th, 1902. [ 

To tlie Honorable, the City Cotmcil: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith, without 
my approval, an order passed by your Hon- 
orable Body at its last meeting directing the 
Commissioner of Public Works to permit the 
free use of water for two sprinkling wagons 
for the South Park Improvement Association, 
etc., for the reason that it is not the duty ®f 
the municipality to sprinkle streets and for the 
further reason that property owners in other 
parts of the city are obliged to pay for water 
used for sprinkling purposes. 
Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, 
Mat/or.

The, following veto message. 

Mayor's Office, > 
April 7th, 1902. \ 

To the Hnorahle, the City Council : 

Gentlemen— I return herewith, without 
my approval, an order passed by your Hon- 
orable Body at its last meeting directing 
the Commissioner of Public Works to notify 
the Harlem and Batavia Street Railroad Com- 
pany to remove in twenty (20) days three (3) 
old stations located on Randolph street, one 
between Howard avenue and Franklin street; 
one between Waller avenue and Park avenue, 
and one between Clark street and Fifty-second 
avenue, for the reason that while the location 
of the property is stated more definitely than 
in an order for the same purpose vetoed by 
me at the last meeting, it is still open to the 
objection that there is no showing made of 
any right in the city to remove these build- 
ings, and the question still remains open as to 
the authority of the Commissioner of Public 
Works summarily to remove the buildings if 
the company does not. The order should be 
referred to the Judiciary Committee fox in- 
vestigation and a report as to the city's rights, 
with recommendations. If this order as it 
stands were carried into effect, the city might 
possibly be heayily mulcted in damages. 

I therefore respectfully recommend that the 
vote by which the order was passed be recon- . 
sidered and that the order be referred to the 
Judiciary Committee for its consideration and 
report. 

Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, 
Mayor. 

Aid. Race moved to reconsider the vote 
by which the order referred to in the 
veto message of His Honor, the Mayor,

The following veto message: 

Mayor's Office, ) 
April 7, 1902. 1" 

To the HonorahJe, the City Council: 

Gentlemen— I return herewith, without my 
approval, an ordinance passed by your Hon- 
orable Body at its last meeting forfeiting the 
rights granted to the Jefferson Street Rail- 
way Company and the Chicago Electric 
Transit Company in the ordinance of April 5, 
1893, as amended April 17, 1S93, as to such 
streets named in the ordinance, on which 
these companies have failed to lay street rail- 
way traclis and operate a street railway within 
one (1) year of the date of the passage of the 
ordinance, for the reason that in accordance 
with the opinion given by the Law Depart- 
ment March 15, 1902, there is considerable 
question as to the validity of this ordinance 
upon the ground that the amendatory ordi- 
nance of April 17, 1893, provided that five (5) 
miles of the track authorized to be laid should 
be laid and in operation within two (2) years 
from the date of the passage of the ordinance 
and that no tim.e limit was set within whitsh 
the remaining tracks should be laid and in 
operation. It is claimed that more than five 
(5) miles of the track authorized were laid 
Within two (2) years. If so, it would seem 
that the technical requirements of the ordi- 
nance were complied with. It may be that 
although such a forfeiture would be unavail- 
ing, the railway company might be compelled 
by mandamus proceedings to lay trades in 
those streets covered by this ordinance where 
the public necessities require transportation 
facilities. 

I, therefore, respectfully recommend the 
reconsideration of the vote by which the ordi- 
nance was passed and its reference to the 
Judiciary Committee for its consideration 
and report upon the legal questions involved. 

Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison,

Gentlemen — I herewith return, without 
my approval, an order directing the Com- 
missioner of Public Works to cause the Chi- 
cago and Western Indiana Railroad Company 
to remove its barb wire fences across public 
streets in the Thirty-fifth Ward, from Twelfth 
street north, for the reason that if any ques- 
tion of title is involved, or if the city's right 
to enforce this order is notwholly clear, there 
ought to be a reference to the Judiciary Com- 
mittee for an examination of the questions 
involved. Moreover, the order should specify 
the streets in question by name. I Avould 
thererore suggest a reconsideration of the 
vote by which the order was passed and its 
reference to the Committee ofi Judiciary\

Department of Public Works, [ 
Chicago, April 5, 1902. \ 

Hon. Carter H. Harrimu., Mayor: 

Dear Sir— I beg to call your, attention to 
an order which appears of record on page 
2794, right hand column, proceedings of April 
2, 1902, directing the Csnimissioner of Public 
Works to issue a voucher to W. L. Shepard, 
Jr., in the sum of fifty (150) dollars, same to 
be in full of all claims, etc., growing out of 
an accident to said Shepard by reason of the 
condition of tramway built for use in the con- 
struction of intercepting sewer, and that the 
Comptroller pay said amount from the ap- 
propriation for intercepting sewers. 

I believe that all claims wherein the De- 
partment of Public Works is concerned upon 
which there is liable to be a charge against 
the appropriation of said department that 
said claims be referred to this department for 
investigation and report before being finally 
passed upon. As this claim was never re- 
ferred to this department for report I believe 
nder the circumstances the order should be 
vetoed. 

Very respectfully, 

F. W. Blocki, 

Commisaiouer.

Gentlemen — I herewith return, without

sary to compel the Board of Education to 
comply with the Haskins & Sells classifica- 
tion of accounts, and to adopt the forms pre- 
scribed in the ordinance iostalling the Has-

of Education can be regulated by the City 
Council to the extent here contemplated. I

and to connect five two-story buildings 
known as 1303, 1306, 1308, 1813 and 1314

Section 1 provides that the company is au- 
thorized to lay down and operate a wire or 
electrical conductor. This occurs twice in 
the first paragraph of the section. It should 
be changed to "wires or electrical con- 
dcictors." 

By the last part of Section 1 lines of wires 
must be maintained and operated for a period 
of not less than five years. By Section 2 the 
privileges granted are for a period of ten 
years. The company should maintain the 
lines of wires for the fu41 term of the ordi- 
nance. The word "five," therefore, in the 
second to the last line of the first section 
should be changed to "ten." 

There are some errors in Section 2. The 
word "and" in the sixteenth line from the 
bottom of the left hand column of page 2798 
should be omitted. 



April 



1 1902 



In the fourth line ivom the bottom of the 
same column the words "together with the 
other two so named" should also be omitted. 

The provision in the second paragraph of 
Section 2 that the city should pay for the 
plant "within reasonable time" after the 
appraisal is made, might easily give rise to 
litigation. There should be a definite term 
set after the appraisal during which the city 
.should have the option of taking over the 
property at the amount of the appraisal. 

I,, therefore, respectfully recommend that 
the vote by which the ordinance was passed 
be reconsidered, and the ordinance be re- 
passed with the accompanying amendments 
embodying the suggestions I have made. 

Respectfully, 

Ca-RTEr H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

Amend an ordinance passed at the regular 
meeting of the City Council, April 2, 1902, at 
page 2797 of Council Proceedings, 1901-1902,

stituting therefor the words "wires or elec- 
trical conductors." 

Strike out the word and figure "five (5)" 
in the second to last and last lines of said 
Section 1 and substitute therefor the word 
and figure "ten (10)." 

In Section 2 of said ordinance strike out 
the word "and" in the twenty-second line of 
said section, and the words "together with 
the other two so named" in lines 34 and 35 of 
said Section 2. 

In the eleventh line of the second para- 
graph of said Section 2 strike out the words 
"reasonable time" and sub titute therefor

The following veto message- 

Mayor's Office, ) 
April 7, 1903. j 

To the Honorable, the City Coxiiicil of the City 
of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith, without 
my approval, an ordinance granting to the 
Phoenix Steam Heating Company permission 
and authority to construct and operate a 
power and heating plant and system, for the 
reason that the authority granted is broader 
than was originally intended, inasmuch as the 
company has a right under the ordinance to 
lay pipes and conduits for the transmission 
and distribution of heat and power, whereas 
the general intention of the ordinance is the 
transmission and distribution of heat and 
power derived from the same source, and for 
the further reason that the municipal owner- 
ship clause contained in Section 7 gives the 
city the right to purchase only at the end of 
the term of twenty years. The right of pur- 
chase should begin with the ordinance. The 
same section should also provide that the ap- 
praisers are not to take into consideration as 
an element of value the value of the franchise 
or any right given under the ordinance, but 
merely the tangible value of the property. 

I have had prepared amendments embody- 
ing these suggestions. I, therefore, respect- 
fully recommend that the vote by which the 
ordinance was passed be reconsidered and 
that the ordinance be repassed with the ac- 
companying amendments. 

Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

Amend an ordinance granting permission 
to the Phoenix Steam Heating Company to 
construct, maintain, and operate a pov/er and 
heat plant and system as follows: 

In the eighth line of Section 1 after the 
word "power" insert the words "produced 
by heat." 

In the third and fourth lines of Section 7 
strilfe out the Avords "the end of said term 



April 7,J

flOO'i 



of twenty years" and substitute therefor the 
^vords '"any time." 

At the end of Section 7 insert the follow- 



"And provided further that said apprais- 
ers shall not consider as any element of value 
in determining their appraisal the rights or 
privileges given under this ordinance." 

Aid. Ailing moved to reconsider the vote by 
which the ordinance referred to in the veto 
message of his Honor the Mayor was passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Badenoch moved that the ordinance 
be amended in accordance with the veto mes- 
sage of his Honor, the Mayor. 

The motion prevailed.

ordinance by adding the words, "its succes- 
sors and assigns," in Sections 1 and 8. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Badenoch moved the passage of the 
ordinance as amended. 

The motion prevailed, and the ordinance

His Honor, the Mayor, surabitted his an- 
nual message to the Council, as follows: 



Mayor's Office. ) 
Chicago, April 7, 1902. f 

To the Honorable, the City Council'of the City 
of I'hicago: 

Gentlemen — For years back the annual 
messages of each successive Mayor have 
largely been devoted to the financial embar- 
rassments of the city government. In these 
messages the gamut has been run both in 
citing causes for our municipal poverty and 
in offering suggestions for measures of relief. 
Again and again has attention been called to 
the various and growing needs of the munici. 
pality; needs which increase from year to 
year with the education of the general public 
to what it may justly expect of a modern city 
government. Over and over again attempt 
has been made to drive home the truth that 
Chicago is suffering serious if not irreparable 
injury because of its financial difficulties. 
Time after time has it been sought to bring 
the public face to face with the facts and to 
open its eyes to the necessity of changing con- 
ditions in the interest of the present and for 
the betterment of the future Chicago. 

drastic remedies for financial condi- 
tions. 

The warnings which have been given in the 
past must be given again today. Finaneially 
the city's affairs are going from bad to 
worse. The embarrassment of 1901 has be- 
come poverty in 1902; and, unless stringent 



1 S {m&2r 

measures of relief be resorted to, the poverty 
of 1902 will become positive destitution in 
1903. These are strong words and I would 
not resort to their use were I not absolutely 
convinced of the necessity of employing he- 
roic treatment and drastic remedies to give 
the city relief. 

In the past few years two measures dealing 
with the raising of revenue by taxation have 
been enacted into law by the legislature of 
Illinois. Each of these measures promised 
municipal relief. The proponents of each 
descanted at length and with seeming enthu- 
siasm upon the benefits Chicago was to re- 
ceive. Each has done its share towards put- 
ting the municipality deeper in the financial 
mire. Had these measures merely failed of 
increasing the city's revenue from taxation, 
although the city might well have felt itself 
the victim of a confidence game played upon 
it by some of its most respected citizens, the 
evil would not have been so great. Your 
appropriation bill would have been cut to fit 
the estimated income and, while mueh neces- 
sary work would have been left undone, the 
purely financial difficulties of the city would 
not have been increased. 

BOARD OF REVIEW AND ASSESSORS ACT 
ILLEGALLY. 

In 1899 the assessed valuation of property 
in this city was vastly increased ; your Com- 
mittee on Finance based its bill upon that in- 
crease, as it not only had the right but was 
under obligation to do. The public was 
clamoring for improvements of the most 
vital necessity and your committee would 
have failed of its bounden duty had it neg- 
lected to do its part towards providing for 
them. Consequently in the spring of 1900 
the appropriation bill as passed by your Hon- 
orable Body was based upon an estimated 
income from taxation of $6,593,751.60. This 
sum, it may be said in passing, was inade- 
quate; with it the municipality could not 
meet the various demands of its citizens. 
During the early summer of that year ru- 



April 7, J 



19 



ri9oa 



moPS became current of the intention of the 
Board of Assessors and the Board of Review 
to reduce the assessed valuation of Cook 
county. The reason ascribed for this wholly 
unwarranted and wholly illegal act was the 
action of the Supreme Court of the state in 
finding the revenue act of 1899 unconstitu- 
tional. 

ADMINISTRATION FORCED TO ACT IN SELF- 
DEFENSE. 

In self defense it became necessary for the 
administration so to cut the running expenses 
of the city government as to meet the ex- 
pected cut. The rumors of the early spring 
became settled facts when the reports of the 
taxing bodies^were finally made. Then it was 
learned the municipal income from taxation 
was to be 15,365,378.00, instead of $6,593,751.60 
—a flat reduction of $1,228,373.60. Fortun- 
ately the administration had taken time by 
the forelock ; it was thereby enabled to finish 
up the year with no more serious loss than seri- 
ously crippled departments and the carrying 
over of a goodly amount of unpaid bills. Had 
the rumor not been promptly and effectively 
acted upon, the financial condition of the city 
at the beginning of the year 1901 would have 
bordered upon absolute bankruptcy. 

The appropriatien bill of 1901,. was based 
upon an estimated income from taxation of 
$6,747,227.02. Of this amount $1,049,000.00 
was injected into the bill to care for perma- 
nent improvements and was only to be ex- 
pended in the event of the assessed valuation 
of city property being largely increased by 
the taxing bodies. In other words, your 
Committee on Finance counted with certainty 
upon an income from taxation of $5,698,227.02. 
Pate again was evilly disposed towards the 
municipality. The legislature passed the 
second of its recent revenue bills and again it 
became necessary in the middle of the year, 
after all the departments had been thoroughly 
organized and were in perfect working order, 
to apply the scalpel and cut appropriation 
after appropriation to the quick, until the 
latest situation had been met and disposed of. 



LEGISLATURE AND TAXLNO UODIEH TREAT 
MUNICIPALITY UNFAIRLY. 

It demands no great stretch of the imagina- 
tion to conceive that for the past several years 
the legislature and the local taxing bodies 
have been engaged in a game of battledore 
and shuttlecock with the municipality, in 
which the latter has been driven here, there, 
and everywhere, just as it suited the capri- 
cious will of the bodies whieh have been 
making sport of its misfortunes. 

Within the past few weeks your Honorable 
Body has passed the appropriation bill of 
1902. In this measure the knife has merci- 
lessly been applied to every branch of the 
administration. Expenditures have been 
pared to the bone. So meagre and inappro- 
priate are the allowances made to the various 
departments that in at least two of them, the 
police and fire departments, there is practical 
demoralization. And yet so primitive is our 
taxing system and so without control or 
check are the taxing bodies, there is "ho cer- 
tainty the meagre revenues of the city, as 
estimated by your Committee on Finance, 
may not again be attacked, making a new 
reduction of expenses a necessity in the 
middle of the current year. 

That a great corporation, entrusted with 
the protection of the property, the health and 
the liyes of approximately 2,000,000 souls, 
should be obliged to make its distribution of 
expenditures but once a year, and that at a 
time when it is in complete ignorance of the 
total its revenues will amount to, would be 
laughable were it not for the serious side to 
the case. Under the law the appropriation 
bill must be passed in the first three months 
of the year, while the full equalized value of 
city property is not finally determined until 
December, eight full months after the city's 
appropriations have been made. This fact 
has been dwelt upon and made prominent so 
often that a reiteration of it may seem un- 
called for; yet after all the prominence 
which has been given it the number of 



April 7,J 20 



[190a 



citizens who understand it and appreciate 
the diflSculties which must follow in the 
wake of so crude a system is small beyond 
belief. 

AVERAGE CITIZEN NOT POSTED ON FACTS. 

The average citizen knows something is 
wrong with his city government, and that 
is about all. He knows that for the lack of 
funds he is deprived of almost numberless 
comforts and conveniences to which, being a 
resident of the second city on the continent, 
he thinks himself as a matter of right and 
justice entitled. The reason for the lack of 
funds he does not know and does not under- 
stand. 

He sees a great city, whose energy and 
progress are proverbial, performing its 
work and caring for its citizens in a- manner 
a generation feehind the times. He learns 
his life and property are under the protection 
of an undersized as well as underpaid 
Police Department, housed in stations 
which are not only architecturally a 
discredit to their immediate surroundings, 
but are a positive menace to the health of 
their occupants. He sees a Fire Department, 
famed in all quarters of the globe for its 
eflBciency as a whole, as well as for the dar- 
ing and enterprise of its individual members, 
put to the alternative of either reducing the 
number of its members, already too small, or 
cutting the pay, already inadequate, of men 
who risk their lives day after day in their 
dangerous calling. He sees a Health Depart- 
ment, which has built up an international 
reputation for ability, efficiency, and scientific 
research, hampered not only in progressive 
investigation, but in everyday measures of 
protection by inadequacy of appropriation. 
He sees the lighting department, with its 
good record for businesslike methods and in- 
telligent, wide-awake policy, compelled to 
reduce rather than to increase its capacity. 
He sees the Public Works Department, ex- 
cept in the branches of work paid for out of 
the Water Fund, at a practical standstill, | 



while in these branches new methods have 
been established of performing municipal 
work economically, efficiently and without 
scandal,. He sees his garbage handled in a 
barbarous manner, alike repugnant to intel- 
ligence, to health and to common decency, 
all for the lack of means to install a modern 
and scientific method of reduction or destruc- 
tion. He sees his bridges rotting, falling into 
the river, or going into disuse, while munici- 
pal poverty deprives the administration of 
the ability to replace them with new bridges 
of modern type suited to the present com- 
merce of the ri^er. He sees this commerce 
threatened with, if not indeed subjected to, 
positive injury by tunnels obstructing the 
navigation of the river, and the municipal 
government unable to remove or lower them 
on account of its financial difficulties. He 
sees sidewalks and street pavements, once 
the contractors' guaranties have expired, go- 
ing to rack and ruin, and no step taken to 
repair or renew them, although he believes 
with all students of municipal affairs that 
once a permanent improvement has been 
made by a property owner the future care of 
the improvement should be taken by the 
municipality, which has no moral right to 
call upon the tax payer to pay for a second 
improvement. 

DEPLORABLE CONDITIONS DUE TO FINANCIAL . 
SYSTEM. 

In short, to whatever department his at- 
tention may be called he will find similar con- 
ditions, expenditures cut to the quick, per- 
manent improvements arrested, an inadequate 
force, reduced pay, and, as a result, general 
demoralization. 

These conditions are necessary corollaries 
of the prevailing system. Public work like 
private work cannot be performed without 
money; workmen will not perform their best 
work unless adequately paid. A department 
cannot properly be maintained without a 
suitable organization ; organization cannot: 
tee had when the men constituting it do not 
know from one month to another what their 



April ' 



21 



lyos 



pay is to be or how long: their tenure of oflice. 
An organization completed in January and 
ciit in half in July is destroyed as far as its 
usefulness is concerned. 

For example, when 2,500 policemen em- 
ployed at 11,000 per year make in January 
what they consider a righteous request for 
an advance in pay, only at the end of the 
first quarter of the year to find themselves 
compelled to take a month's vacation without 
pay or permit between three and four hun- 
dred of their fellows to* be deprived of their 
positions, one should neither be surprised 
nor find cause for grumbling if in the Police 
Department something akin to demoraliza- 
tion ensue. 

These are stubborn facts for which a remedy 
must be found and found quickly. The con- 
ditions have existed for years, the only change 
in them being a gradual making for the worse, 
until today they have reached a point where 
no resident of Chicago, be he capitalist, 
businessman, mechanic, or laborer, can afford 
to let them even stand still; they must be 
improved, or Chicago from center to circum- 
ferenee will suffer irremediable injury and 
every citizen, whether rich or poor, will 
suffer incalculable harm. 

REMEDY LIES IN A MODERN CHARTER. 

Where then is the remedy to be found ? 
Personally I do not believe a complete remedy 
€an be had except through the instrument- 
ality of a complete modern charter. Were 
the sore spots not so many, legislative action 
and an occasional constitutional amendment 
might work a cure. Chicago's case demands 
heroic treatment and heroic remedies must be 
applied. The only agency, which in my 
opinion can apply these remedies, is a con- 
stitutional convention. 

For years and years we have had a make- 
shift city government. Permanent improve- 
ments have either been neglected or have 
been made in halfway measure and have been 
paid f®r out of the annual income. When an 
■improvement of imperative necessity and of 



too great magnitude to be handled in this 
w;!y has been demanded, a new taxing body 
has been created, and in this manner new 
causes for future trouble have been created. 

The close observer of Chicago's municipal 
affairs must soon observe two ills, a simul- 
taneous cure for which at first blush seems 
almost beyond reach. He becomes impressed 
with the certainty of the average citizen pay- 
ing all in the way of taxation he should be 
called upon to pay, if indeed not more than 
should be demanded of him in a well- 
regulated community. He cannot escape the 
farther conviction that the municipal govern- 
ment receives too small a revenue from taxa- 
tion to meet its obligations to the public. 
These two propositions seem impossible of 
reconciliation until a more careful scrutiny 
develops the explanation: the municipality 
proper receives as its share of revenue from 
taxation a sum unreasonably disproportionate 
to and quite out of keeping with the total 
amiOunt of taxes raised within its own limits. 
A distribution is out of all reason which gives 
the city government proper, performing as it 
does the lion's share of municipal functions, 
but 23 per cent of the money raised from tax- 
ation in its own territory. 

AVERAGE CITIZEN TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY. 

The question then is not one of increas- 
ing the taxes paid by the average citizen, 
for already enough, if not to© much, is ex- 
acted of him. Great corporations, great 
capitalists and great business interests 
manage to escape the payment of a 
fair tax, it is true, and every effort 
should be made by your Honorable 
Body through an appropriate committee care- 
fully to scrutinize the assessing for purposes 
of taxation of this and kindred property. 
The average citizen if anything is overtaxed. 
What is needed is a fairer distribution of the 
funds raised between the various taxing 
bodies, while they continue to exist ; while 
earnest effort should be made to bring about 
the ultimate extinction of all separate taxing

bodies except the City of Chicajro and the 
Board of Education within Chicago's limits. 
The towns, the parks, the Sanitary District 
and the County (the latter as far as it con- 
cerns Chicago), all should be brought under 
one common care and direction. Responsi- 
bility should be centralized; the obligation to 
give good government should be centered in 
one otficial circle; then watchfulness can be 
focused on one point and responsibility not 
be shirl^ed nor evaded. 

This question was discussed by me at length 
in the message I submitted to your Honorable 
Body at the expiration of the year 1899. I can 
add nothing to the declarations of that mes- 
sage to emphasize the necessity of a general 
consolidation of local taxing bodies. One 
declaration will well bear repetition, however, 
for it should not be lost sight of in any steps 
to be taken towards bringing about this much 
needed reform. Opposition should be deter- 
mined and unalterable to any proposed meas- 
ure of consolidation having for its purpose 
the enlargement of the territory occupied by 
the City of Chicago. 

•CHICAGO'S TERRITORY SHOUI^D NOT BE 
EXTENDED. 

In considerable measure the existing civic 
evils may be traced to a common origin, the 
great territory, sparsely settled and scantily 
improved, which makes up Chicago. The 
revenue from taxation as well as from mis- 
cellaneous sources raised in these outlying 
districts is comparatively small, while the de- 
mands of their citizens for improvements, 
protection and measures of public comfort 
are great. The citizens of these sections with 
justice demand attention to their wants at 
least approximately equal to the attention 
bestowed upon more populous districts. 
These demands must be heeded by your Hon- 
orable Body as well as by the executive 
branch of the city government. 

Chicago's territory is today too great, and 
warning to this effect should be published 
broadcast. An attempt to increase this terri- 



tory should meet with instant and emphatic 
discouragement. The ideal city is compact. 
With its area fully occupied the care of all 
branches of administration can be applied to 
all sections expeditiously and well. In such a 
city public service can he satisfactorily and 
easily administered; police and fire protection 
can be fairly and impartially given; measures 
of health can be centralized and used to the 
best advantage ; schools can be distributed 
with almost mathematical preqision. There 
is no loss of force, no waste of energy. 

In a city such as Chicago, on the other 
hand, where the population, great as itmay 
be, is scattered over a wide expanse of terri- 
tory, public service is spread out too thin. 
As a result great sums of money are spent 
for comparatively unsatisfactory work. Ex- 
isting conditions are not to be altered. From 
them we may learn the lesson experience 
teaches of the desirability of a compact city 
and by the guidepost of salutary warning so 
guide our future steps as to avoid adding new 
difficulties to the difficulties under which our 
city is laboring and so go from bad to worse. 

DIVIDED RESPONSIBILITY OF CITY AND COUNTY 
HARMFUL. 

The fact of Chicago's population being 
spread over an expanse of 196 square miles 
works to the disadvantage of the municipality^ 
crippling every effort to give good govern- 
ment. The fact of Chicago's management of 
public affairs and exercise of municipal 
functions being divided up among eight dif- 
ferent corporations, each levying its own 
taxes, maintaining its full complement of 
officers and employes, managing its own af- 
fairs and spending its own money without 
regard to unity of action or community of 
purpose, works irremediable injury to good 
local government. The recent consolidation 
of the township governments has removed a 
crying evil. The separate existence of 
the Sanitary District, which of right, now 
that the work of construction has been 
practically completed, should be part and 



April 7,J

[1902 



parcel of the City's Water Department, 
the continuance of three separate park 
boards and the appointment of the members 
of 'two of these boards by an authority under 
n© distinct responsibility to the people of Chi- 
cago, who foot the bills, the divided responsi- 
bility for government in the territory of Chi- 
cago between the county and the city, are 
productive of evil and should speedily and 
permanently be ended. 

Every effort should be directed towards a 
consolidation of taxing bodies within the 
limits ot the city, eliminating all bodies ex- 
cepting the eity and the schools. The funds 
raised for the maintenance of the school sys- 
tem should be kept separate and distinct from 
the funds raised for other municipal purposes. 
These funds are sacred and should so be set 
aside and devoted to the single purpose for 
which they are levied as to be and to remain 
inviolate; Under the present system, where- 
by the school trustees receive their appoint- 
ment from the Mayor, subject to the approval 
of and confirmation by your Honorable Body, 
sufficient municipal control over their actions 
is retained, while the funds under their con- 
trol are subject to no danger of diversion to 
an unwarranted use. The same might be said 
of the Library Board, though in this case the 
necessity of a separate control of its funds is 
not so imperative. 

PARK SYSTEM SHOULD BE CONSOLIDATED. 

A kindred system of management applied 
te a park beard, made up of a consolidation 
©f the three existing park boards, would give 
that local control and undivided and unes- 
capable responsibility which are so necessary 
as a guaranty of good management. The 
consolidation of the three boards into one 
would result, however, in the singleness of 
. aim and uniformity of direction desirable in. 
a body organized t® subserve one purpose, as 
well as in economy of management and har- 
BQony of plan and operation. 

The consolidation of the various taxing 
bodies is not the only essential to the pro- 



gress and permanent welfare of our city. 
Students of municipal affairs are agreed upor> 
the necessity of a complete change in the local 
justice court system and the establishment in 
its stead of a system of city courts, to be 
courts of record with full jurisdiction in all 
minor cases, civil as well as criminal. The 
poorer classes are the sufferers by the exist- 
ng justice court system, a system under 
whicb justice is only too often a misnomer. 
Under it the usurer, the blackmailer, and the 
rascal in general find it easy to harass the 
unfortunate, to bleed the unwary, and to 
wear out the patience of the ordinary citizen. 
A system making it possible for the resident 
along the Indiana line to be sued in a justice 
court at Wheeling on the extreme northwest- 
ern line of the county is barbarous, and pub- 
lic attention should be directed toward its 
eradication. 

BONDED DEBT NOW AS COMPARED WITH 
DEBT IN 1871. 

Equally indefensible is the limitation which 
results in a city of 2,000,000 people spread 
over 196 square miles of territory having for 
strictly municipal purposes a smaller bonded 
debt than it had thirty years ago, when its 
population was but little more than 300,000 
and its area but 36 square miles. If the 
14,500,000.00 of bonds issued by the city in 
behalf of the World's Columbian Exposition 
be eliminated, Chicago's bonded debt for 
municipal purposes is but 110,970,000.00. or 
$5.91 per capita, as compared with 114,103,- 
000.00, or $46.00 per capita, in ISTl, before 
the great fire of that year wiped out of exist- 
ence practically all the improvements upon 
which the proceeds of the various bond issues 
had been expended. During the coming year 
the bonded debt of Chicago will be farther 
reduced in the sum of $347,000.00 by the pay- 
ing off of water bonds to that amount. 

In the meantime permanent improvements 
are neglected or ignored. Chicago needs the 
power to double the amount of its bond issues 
and make use of the proceeds to build

modera bridges across the river, to extend 
the municipal light ng system inro all sections 
of the city, to develop the great water power 
of the Drainage Canal at Lockport, to build 
new police stations and engine houses which 
shall be ornaments to the neighborhoods in 
which they are erected, to purchase property 
along the lake front to be used as bathing 
beaches, and to erect bathhouses, permanent 
and attractive, to care for bathers of both 
sexes, to construct modern plants for the de- 
struction of garbage. 

WATER POWER OF LOCKPORT SHOULD BE 
UTILIZED. 

! Chicago's helpless financial condition can- 
not be better shown than by citing the case 
of the magnificent water power lying dormant 
-ut Lockport. This water power by all the 
laws of equity and justice belongs to the cit- 
izens of Chicago, whose hard earned taxes 
%ave gone towards its creation, whose future 
earnings ar-e pledged to pay up the bonds 
and thus settle in full for it. For three 
^rears the water power has been lying idle, 
awaiting the lime when the City of Chicago, 
with all its tremendous wealth, with its 
business activity and love of progress, shall 
Und the means of raising the comparatively 



paltry sum of 12,500,000.00 needed to de- 
velop it and harness it for use. 

In the meantime there is the constant 
danger of the diversion of this great water 
power, with its tremendous possibilities in the 
shape of economy, from its rightful owner, 
the people of Chicago, to some one of the 
many individual schemers or corporations 
which are hungry for its possession. In the 
five years I have been Mayor, the City of 
Chicago, thanks to the antiquated provisions 
of the charter under which it must work, 
has paid off 11,615,950.00 of its bonded debt. 
Not one dollar of this money has it been able 
legally to transfer to the development of a 
water power whose use would enable the 
city to make its dark corners bright, make 
its streets by night as bright as by day, add 
incalculably to the value of its police force, 
and save thousands upon thousands of dol- 
lars annually to its heavily burdened tax- 
payers. 

The following tables prepared by the Pub- 
lic Accountant and Auditor of the City of 
Boston and submitted by the Mayor to the 
Board of Aldermen make interesting read-

liyu;^ 



In my message of 1S9'J I dwelt at length 
upon the necessity of an increase in the 
bonded debt of Chicago, as well as upon the 
safeguards which should be thrown around 
the moneys raised by such means. Each 
issue of bonds, I suggested, should be deroted 
specifically and unalterably to a given pur- 
pose; bonds should be issued only as the 
money to be raised by ihem was needed ; the 
moneys obtained by their sale were to be ex- 
pended under the direct and constant care of 
a board of overseers or directors, appointed 
for the specific purpose of jealously guard- 
ing against a possible misapplication of the 
funds as well as against the reckless and un- 
necessary issuing of bonds. With these pre- 
cautions scant opportunity would remain for 
an abuse ©f the city's power to issue bonds 
or for extravagant or dishonest malappro- 
priation of public funds. 

Under the present constitution a revenue 
law must be uniform in its application. If it 
were not for this provision of the eonstitu- 
tion it would be possible to petition the 
legislature to increase the percentage of two 
and one-half, established by the present 
revenue law as the limitation upon the ability 
of a municipality to issue bonds, and thus 
obtain relief. While this change would be 
desirable for Chicago and would receive the 
almost unanimous support of its citizens, its 
desirability is not so marked in other counties, 
while in some counties the public would look 
upon it with scant favor. Chicago therefore 
could count upon practically no aid from the 
outside counties, whose legislators would be 
found lined up in a solid body to oppose such 
a change. 

CHICAGO SHOULD NOT BE TREATED LIKE 
SCANTILY SETTLED COUNTIES. 

There is something of the grotesque in this 
dependence of Chicago with its 2,000,000 in- 
habitants upon relief to be obtained from 
legislators from counties with the scantiest 
population. There is neither equity nor just- 
ice in keeping this great county in subjection 



to the same laws and limitations which ap- 
peal to and govern backwoods counties. Cook 
County and the splendid City of Chica;^o 
should be freed from the shackles of the ex- 
isting primitive and out-of-date laws which 
retard its progress and obstruct its growth. 
Complete relief can only be had through the 
instrumentality of a constitutional convention 
which shall grant Chicago a charter in thor- 
ough consonance with its needs and in accord 
with the times. 

While we await the installation of these re- 
forms, Chicago's progressive capitalists, mer- 
chants and manufacturers might weigh well 
in their minds the importance of increasing 
the annual revenues of the city. The people 
are entitled to protecti®n of life, limb and 
property ; their children are entitled to a good 
common school education. Their demand 
upon the municipality is righteous for police 
protection for their persons and their prop- 
erty, for fire protection for their homes and 
places of business, for health protection 
for themselves and families. They have 
a just claim to some of the luxuries of life, 
such as frequent parks for the adults and 
playgrounds for the young, well cared for 
streets, alleys and sidewalks, clean by day 
and bright by night. Their schools, now the 
best in the land, should be ever maintained at 
their present high standard. The Public 
Library should have such financial support as 
to enable it to serve the citizen expeditiously 
and well. 

AN HONEST SHOWING OF PERSONAL PROPERTY 
DEMANDED. 

These things require money. In what way 
can the wealthy, progressive citizen more 
readily and more effectively show his loyalty 
to the city, whose growth and greatness has 
enabled him to amass his Avealth, than by 
paying willingly and without a murmur every 
dollar of the personal tax he owes to the 
municipality? An honest showing of the per- 
sonal property of Chicago would enable tke 
community to do its duty by its citizens. I 



April 7,1

is time^for^our so-called ''better classes" to 
open their eyes to the fact that honest 
schedules are as essential to the city as are 
honest aldermen. The difference between the 
boodle alderman and the citizen who boodles 
in makino; out his personal property schedule 
is not noticeable to the naked eye. 

Chicago cries out to-day for a return to the 
old-time spirit which made the city's name 
famous the world around. The men who made 
Chicago for the most part have passed away. 
With them their city was a pride and a boast. 
They knew Chicago. Its equal for progress, for 
growth, for enterprise, for courage, the world 
had never seen. In the early decades of the 
past century its site had been a swamp, the 
home of the deer, the wolf and the bear; 
where today sl<yscrapers tower, swarms of 
wild fowl had made their nests. A trader or 
two, an occasional wanderer, and the abor- 
igines were its only human habitants. It had 
no advantages a dozen other spots did not 
possess. Indeed other places had the advan- 
tage over it of earlier settlement. It grew 
and other settlements grew. But they did not 
grow as it grew. Chicago had in its favor a 
citizenship of heroic mould, to whom no ob- 
stacle was insurmountable, no danger too 
great, no scheme too vast. It was the all- 
conquering, unconquerable, indomitable 
spirit of its citizenship that made Chicago. 

OLD CHICAGO SPIRIT DORMANT, NOT DEAD. 

That spirit cannot be dead. The fathers, 
the men of vast design, broad vision, and 
courageous heart, have passed away, but their 
blood is still here. A reincarnation of the 
old-time Chicagoan with two years of the old 
Chicago spirit will accomplish more of pur- 
pose than a generation of helpless criticism, 
dawdling complaint, and pale-livered aestheti- 
cism. The Chicago spirit still exists. It de- 
mands, and it has the right to demand, of 
those who have been made rich by the city's 
titanic growth, appreciation of their debt, 
gratitude for the ease, comfort and luxury of 
their daily lives, and a willingness cheerfully 



to aid the city, which has given them all they 
have. 

My views of the traction question and of 
the conditions upon which an extension of 
franchise should be granted were given ex- 
haustively in the special message I submitted 
to your Honorable Body on January 6th of 
this year. At that time I discussed the ques- 
tion at length and in all its bearings. To 
what I said at that time there is little for me 
to add. 

Two points by an oversight not treated at 
that time are worthy of consideration. The 
public has so vital and absorbing an interest 
in the character of service given by a traction 
company, as well as in the guaranty of an 
uninterrupted service, that in the considera- 
tion of an extension ordinance careful atten- 
tion should be given to the relationship of 
the corporation to its employes. Whether 
the municipality should go so far as to estab- 
lish a uniform scale of wage and a maximum 
time for a working day are points urged by 
union labor but still open to doubt. They 
should certainly be discussed in all their 
bearings before a final decision is reached. 

SYSTEM OF ARBITRATION FOR STREET RAILWAY 
EMPLOYES. 

Some safeguards should be thrown around 
the employes. In protecting the employe, in 
fact, we are protecting the public. The city 
has the unquestionable right, if indeed the 
duty does not devolve upon it, of establish- 
ing some method of arbitrating labor di&cul- 
ties, liable to arise between a traction 
company and its employes. A street car 
strike not only upsets transportation and 
deprives the citizen of the opportunity to ride; 
by its very nature it is certain to culminate 
in serious disorders if not riots; bloodshed is 
almost the inevitable result. The scenes that 
ensue lead to certain demoralization of a part 
of the public. Every effort should be made 
to establish a permanent system of arbitration 
by which disputes may be settled rapidly, 
peaceably, and in a law-abiding manner.

An evil of Chicag'os transportation facili- 
ties is the train system. To save the hire of 
an extra motorman or gripman, the custom 
has grown up of running two and three cars 
in a train. As a result street crossings are 
frequently blockaded, the time required to 
start or stop a train is increased, citizens are 
compelled to submit to longer -waits for car 
service, and a longer time is taken to load and 
unload passengers. The ideal traction system 
gives single car service. Single cars are more 
easily kept in motion, there is a shorter wait 
between cars, blockades are of less frequency, 
and good service is in every way promoted. 
"One car" service should be insisted upon in 
an extension ordinance and the train service 
should be absolutely prohibited. 

The elections of recent date have shown in 
unmistakable manner the existence of a strong 
popular sentiment in favor of the municipal 
ownership of street railroads. In view of the 
almost unanimous declaration of the voters 
upon this proposition I cannot too strongly 
urge upon your Honorable Body the impor- 
tance of deferring any grant of franchise to 
the traction companies until the city shall 
have obtained enabling legislation by which 
it will be empowered to own its interurban 
transportation facilities. If this power is to 
be obtained by the city from the legislature, 
the grant of enabling legislation must ante- 
date the grant of extensions. The people have 
expressed their will. Your Honorable Body 
cannot obey the mandate except by serving 
notice upon the traction companies that un- 
til the city shall have received the legislation 
to which it is entitled and which it desires, 
the question of extending the existing fran- 
chises must lie in abeyance. 

PRACTICABILITY OF REFERENDUM SYSTEM 
PROVED. 

All lovers of good municipal government 
should find cause for rejoicing in the splendid 
proof the citizens gave in the recent election 
of the practicability of the referendum as a 
means of learning popular sentiment. Tw« 
years ago, in lading down the five cardinal 



points of franchise extension, I first broached 
the idea of requiring a favorable expression 
of popular sentiment as a prerequisite to 
the grant of an extension ordinance. The 
suggestion was visited with severe criticism. 
It was claimed popular interest could not be 
sufficiently centered upon a given question 
to obtain a response from a sufficient num- 
ber of voters to make the vote a fair gauge 
of public opinion. The recent vote on 
the so-called "little ballot" affords an 
emphatic and conclusive answer to the crit- 
icism. The public takes an absorbing in- 
terest in all questions concerning the settle- 
ment of the street railway controversy. The 
miserable service of to-day has been borne by 
the users of the street cars so long and so 
patiently that a few months more of an- 
tiquated service will be willingly endured 
rather than that the city should to-day yield 
up the fruits of its long and hard fought 
battle. The voters have cast their ballots 
overwhelmingly in favor of municipal own- 
ership; in casting their ballots they have 
shown the practicability of the referendum 
as a means of learning the trend of popular 
opinion. Your Honorable Body will mistake 
popular sentiment if you fail to give proper 
heed to the people's mandate and by that 
failure tie up this municipality in a fresh 
twenty years of servitude to the traction 
companies without laying firmly and immov- 
ably the foundation stones of municipal 
ownership. 

STREET PAVING PROBLEMS DISCUSSED. 

In ray last year's message I discussed at 
some length the street paving problem. There 
are but two kinds of paving material now in 
general use in Chicago which may be called 
even partially satisfactory — dressed granite 
block and asphalt. The former mak s a 
magnificent material for the pavement of 
heavy traffic streets; the latter serves the 
same purpose on light traffic streets. Short 
streets and courts only used by teams for the 
occasional delivery of goods may be paved 



April 7, J 



30 



[1902 



by the property owner with vitrified 
brick, who will find this material fairly 
serviceable as a paving material. While 
brick will not stand heavy or even medium 
traffic, it forms a clean, healthy surface for 
streets not subjected to heavy use and has 
but one objectionable feature, its noisiness. 
It is far cleaner and under the above restric- 
ti®ns more satisfactory than macadam, which 
should only be made use of in outlying dis- 
tricts, being dusty in dry weather and muddy 
in wet. 

For the sake of introducing competition in 
the paving market it might be well to give 
the creosoted block pavement a thorough 
test. In June ©f 1900 a sample of the 
creosoted block ravement was laid in front 
of the Auditorium in Michigan boulevard, 
and on this heavily traveled street has shown 
most excellent wearing qualities. In Novem- 
ber of 1899 one-half of the Rush Street 
Bridge was paved with the same material. 
The traffic on this bridge is of the heaviest 
character; being narrower than the street on 
both sides of it and carrying all the light 
traffic of a large portion of the North Side in 
addition to the heavy traffic from the whole- 
sale district, from the river docks and from 
the railroad freight houses, the paving is sub- 
jected to what is, in all probability as severe 
and exacting a test as any single piece of 
paving is put to in Chicago. The following 
is a statement made by one of the city's As- 
sistant Engineers: 

"I have examined the creosoted block pave- 
ment in Michigan avenue in front of the 
Auditorium Hotel and also the pavement of the 
Rush Street Bridge. I find on Michigan ave- 
nue the pavement to be in first class condi- 
tion, showing practically no wear. On the 
bridge I removed the pavement in each road- 
way and find that the untreated pine block 
pavement shows a wear at some points of as 
much as two inches, and in the creosoted 
roadway the maximum wear seems to be 
about one-eighth of an inch and is very uni- 
form. I should say that the average wear 
between the two roadways is in favor of the 
creosoted block six to one, or an average 



wear of three-fourths of an inch in the com- 
mon block and one-eighth of an inch in 
creosoted pavement." 

CREOSOTED BLOCK PAVING EXPERIMENT 
FAVORED. 

Because of this favorable .showing business 
prudence would suggest a thorough experi- 
ment with creosoted block pavement. Its 
cleanliness and comparative noiselessness 
render it an ideal paving material, if its wear- 
ing qualities will survive the test. 

The civil service law has become a thor- 
oughly established feature of our municipal 
government. For two years practically every 
employe of the city has been under civil serv- 
ice, having received his appointment as a re- 
sult of a competitive examination. During 
the first three years of my service as Mayor 
the law was gradually established, until to- 
day, with the exception of the "holdovers" 
from previous administrations, there is 
hardly an employe of the city who is not un- 
der its protection. In these years the law has 
received a thorough test; its good qualities 
have been shown; its weaknesses have been 
developed. From local experience I should 
ascribe as its chief advantage not so much the 
securing of a higher grade of employe than 
was secured under the old system as the pre- 
vention of the employment of an employe, 
good, bad or indifferent, merely for political 
purposes, rather than to meet a requirement 
of the municipality. The prevention of so- 
called pay roll stuffing, if it were the only 
advantage derived from the law, would be 
ample warrant for the introduction and re- 
tention of the system. 

CIVIL SERVICE LAWr AMENDMENT RECOM- 
MENDED. 

When the time comes that an effort may be 
made to amend the civil service law without 
positively endangering its very existence, in 
my opinion at least two changes should be • 
made. In positions requiring the exercise of 
executive ability, such as heads of bureaus 
commanding officers of the police and fire 



April 7,1 



31 



[190a 



departments, etc., the appointing power 
should be given some latitude in exercising a 
choice among a number of names certified. 
It is beyond reason to expect a written ex- 
amination to develop executive qualities. An 
attempt is made to avoid this difficulty to- 
day by certifying the highest three from a 
given list to the appointing power and elimi- 
nating from the list a name which after three 
certifications has been rejected. A preferable 
method would be to require a higher average 
than 70 fo for success in passing a promotional 
examination. The list when made up should 
then be certified in its entirety to the appoint- 
ing power, who could exercise his judgment in 
selecting the most promising candidate after 
a careful scrutiny of all the names submitted. 
As the second amendment I would suggest 
giving the appointing power the absolute 
power of discharge. Under the present sys- 
tem the appointing power merely has the 
right to suspend, subject to the right of the 
suspended employe to demand a trial under 
the charges laid against him. In cases of 
outright wrongdoing the present system 
works satisfactorily. The head of a depart- 
ment may have moral certainty, however, of 
culpability on the part of a subordinate and 
yet lack the ability of giving definite proof. 
The Superintendent of the Police Depart- 
ment may be convinced in his own mind of 
the moral turpitude of a subordinate and yet 
lack the facts that would sustain charges be- 
fore a trial board. An employe may be so 
shiftless and wanting in application and 
energy as to i-ender him valueless as an em- 
ploye. These qualities are not subject to 
definite proof on a trial and the service is en- 
cumbered with an employe whose continuance 
in his position is demoralizing an office full of 
fellow employes. The inabi'lity of the ap- 
pointing power t© select the individual to fill 
the vacant place removes the temptation to 
discharge for improper purposes, and the de- 
partment head is given the power to enforce 



attention to duty and discipline among his 
subordinates. 

In the reports of the heads of the various 
departments, compiled in connection with 
this message, details of the working of each 
department will be presented elaborately. It 
will suffice here to refer to some features call- 
ing for special attention. 

POLICE DEPARTMENT. 

No administration measure put into opera- 
tion during the past year has been more 
worthy of commendation or more pro- 
ductive of beneficent results than the wine 
room ordinance. The public can form but a 
limited idea of the difficulties overcome and 
the influences resisted in securing the passage 
of this measure. Having passed the Coun- 
cil, many and doleful were the predictions 
that it would prove to be but a flash in the 
pan ; that it would soon become a dead letter 
ordinance. Notwithstanding these forebod- 
ings, the ordinance has been faithfully en- 
forced to the delight of all who deplored the 
existence of the evils which it was designed 
to minimize.' It is not extravagant to say 
that no ordinance passed by the Chicago City 
Council has produced such a noticeable moral 
effect on the community. The wine room 
was the primary school of depravity, the 
vestibule to a life of degradation. It has 
been suppressed and it must stay suppressed. 
The Police Department is to be complimented 
on the thorough manner in which the ordi- 
nance has been enforced and on its success in 
the suppression of open gambling which, by 
the way, has at no time been tolerated since 
1897. Pool rooms have been closed and kept 
closed. The difficulty of absolutely suppress- 
ing the elusive handbook is of course appa- 
rent, but S0 successful have the efforts of 
Chief O'Neill been in this respect that 
the telephone plan, I am informed, is the only 
method by which money can be placed on the 
races in Chicago. And constant surveilance 
makes this method of placing bets extremely 
difficult. 

To the most casual observer improvement 



April 7, ] 

in the moral condition of the city is apparent. 
This improvement I attribute in large measure 
to the enforcement of the wine room ordi- 
nance already referred to, to the elimination 
of the levee features from the business dis- 
trict, to the establishment of the Municipal 
Lodging House, and to the general spirit of 
intelligence, discipline and industry mani- 
fested by the department of police from chief 
to patrolman. 

The utter inadequacy of the force as to 
numerical strength maizes its worlc all the 
more commendable. 

Statistics supplied by the Superintendent 
of the Municipal Lodging House prove how 
desirable was its establishment. The follow- 
ing figures cover the period from December 
21, 1901, to April 1st: 

Number of lodgings given 6,625 

Number of meals served 12,044 

Number of situations supplied 1,215 

Number of hours worked on the city 

streets 1,869 

Number of medical examinations 6,490 

Number of lodgers vaccinated 1,203 

These figures, while clinching the conten- 
tion that the institution is not only desirable 
but a necessity, and showing what direct 
good was done during the winter in affording 
emergency assistance, give no adequate idea 
of what crime it prevented by extending a 
friendly hand in the hour of helplessness and 
perhaps of despair. The winter just ending, 
a comparatively mild winter, was an ideal 
one in which to test the value of the institution . 

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH. 

Despite the fact that epidemic diseases 
were prevalent throughout the civilized 
world in 1901 and that many cities suffered 
severely, both in loss of life and in moneys 
expended for the suppression of contagion in 
various forms, Chicago has been remarkably 
free from any disastrous visitation of this 
l^ind. This immunity, which means so much 
as affecting the material interests of the 
people, is due largely to the preventative and 
educational methods ©f the department, 



32 



[1902 



aided as it has been for a number of years 
by the medical profession and the public 
press. A striliing illustration of the efficacy 
of the methods employed is shown in the few 
cases of smallpox in Chicago during a period 
when the territory contributory to the city 
has been severely afflicted with this loath- 
some disease. 

No less important and successful has been 
the work of the department along other lines 
tending to conserve and protect the public 
health. In its sanitary inspection of homes, 
stores, factories, and premises generally, and 
that of meat," milk, ice, and other food sup- 
plies, the methods employed have been 
thorough and effective — and this too in the 
face of enforced reductions in the staff em-. 
ployed. In the municipal laboratory there 
has been increased eflSciency in the work of 
co-operation with the medical profession in 
the diagnosis, care and restriction of con- 
tagious diseases. 

It is gratifying to note the recognition 
given to the department during the past year, 
both at home and abroad. At the Paris Ex- 
position, the department was awarded a gold 
medal for its exhibit, showing the methods 
and results of iis handling of contagious and 
preventable diseases. Only one other health 
organization in the United States was ac- 
corded a similar honor. At the Pan-Ameri- 
can Exposition at Buffalo the department 
Avas also awarded a gold medal for an exhibit 
similar to that made at Paris. 

In brief, there is reason for congratulation 
on the city's health record for 1901— a record 
which attests the efficiency of the depart- 
ment's methods and which have contributed 
so largely to place Chicago where it now 
stands as having the lowest death rate of any 
city of its size in the world — a rate, among 
the largest American cities of more than 21 
per cent less than that of St Louis, 25 per 
cent less than that of Philadelphia, more than 
30 per cent less than that of Boston, and 
nearly 35 per cent less than that of New York.

The bathinf;- beach system inaug-urated last 
summer has contributed in no small degi'ce 
to the good health of Chicago. There is no 
gainsaying the fact that free bathing institu- 
tions tend to advance the general average of 
public health, while they add to the comfort 
and happiness of those boys and girls and 
adults, too, who can not afford to go to sum- 
mer resorts, by giving them an opportunity 
to biithe and swim without hindrance and 
without cost. 

The six bathing places established and con- 
ducted under municipal supervision last sum- 
mer were availed of to an extent that proved 
their value. The attendance during the sea- 
son was, in round numbers, as follows: 

Oakdale Avenue Beach 50,000 

Lincoln Parl< Beach 60,000 

Wall^er Beach 100,000 

Fiftieth Street Beach 25,000 

Seventy-ninth Street Beach 40,000 

Wheeler Beach 85,000 

Total B10,000 

Of this number about 70% were boys, 15% 
men, and 15% women and girls. The meacrre 
percentage of women and girls is due without 
doubt to the want of suitable accommoda- 
tions, a want which is to be hoped some 
means will be found to remedy during the 
coming season. 

SMALL PARKS. 

The Special Park Commission, appointed 
by me, went before the General Assembly at 
its last session with four bills providing for 
the establishment of small parks and play- 
grounds and secured the legislation desired. 
One of the Acts is of a general enabling 
character, authorizing the West, South and 
Lincoln Park Boards to acquire recreation 
grounds not exceeding ten acres each in area. 
The other Acts permit the three park boards to 
issue $1,000,000.00 in bonds on the West Side, 
$1,000,000.00 on the South Side and 1500,000.00 
on the North Side; the proceeds to be used in 
the establishment of these breathing places 
and playgrounds. 
The three park boards are acting in har- 



mony with resolulif^ns of tlie Special Coin- 
inission, providing for co-operation of thf.- 
four I)')d!es in the selection of sites under 
tliese Acts and for the employment of an ex- 
pert in park affairs, who may enlarge, amend 
or confirm the report being prepared by the 
City Commission. A report on sites and con- 
ditions existing in the overcrowded river 
wards, ;iccompanied by a series of maps, is 
now being prepared by the Commission. 

A lively interest was shown by the public 
in the opening of the municipal |)!aygn)und.s 
during the last sunamer. Three of these are 
on property belonging to Ihe city, located at 
Twenty-fourth street and Wabash avenue; at 
Thirty-third Street; Wentworth avenue and 
LaSalle street; at West Polk street near Laf- 
lin street. Three other playgrounds are oper- 
ated by the Commission on land leased to the 
city free of cost. They are located on Bon- 
lleld street near West Thirty-tirst street ; on 
Goose island ; and on Plymouth court near 
Harrison street. With the exception of the- 
Goose Island ground these playgrounds are- 
situated close to public schools. In the win- 
ter all or part of the grounds were made jnto> 
skating ponds, making popular all-the-year- 
resorts for children and grown persons. Mucb 
volunteer assistance has been given the 
Commission; donations of equipment and 
skates have been ma;de by citizens and the 
Turners' societies and athletic organizations 
have taken an active interest in the movement 
which in ray judgment is one of the most 
beneficent ever inaugurated in Chicago. 

There are at present twenty-lour small 
parks under the care of the Small Paric Com- 
mission, as follows: Ellis Park. Douglas- 
Monument Park, Aldine Square, Washingtor\i 
Square. Green Bay. Gale Park. Lake wood] 
Park, Kedzie Park, Bickerdike Park. Con- 
gress Park, Irving Park. Jefferson Park, 
Eldred Park. Gross Park, DeKalb Square. 
Norwood Park, Dauphin Park, East End 
Park, Fernwood Park, Normal Park, Holsteire 
Park, Seventy-second Street Park, Triangular 
Park, bounded by Ogden, Clark and Wells.

streets; Triangular Park, bounded by North 
Dlark, Belden avenue and Sedgwick street. 
Especially in the densely settled districts 
these breathing spots proved a-great blessing 
to the poorer classes, and during the hot sum- 
tner days were constantly thronged with men, 
women and children who live at a distance 
from the large parks. 

comptroller's office. 
The new system of municipal accounting 
was put in operation on January 1. 1902, with- 
out confusion or detriment to the conduct of 
public affairs. The chief features of the new 
system are: 

1. Uniformity in accounting methods. 

2. Concentration of bookkeeping in the 
accounting department. 

3. Daily reports and audit. 

4. Ttie making of all collections by the 
City Collector. 

5. Monthly reports and balances between 
the Comptroller and all departments. 

6. Monthly report of the Comptroller to 
the Mayor and Council, showing in derail the 
revenue and expenses and a general balance 
sheet comparative with the corresponding 
month and a period of the previous year. 

7. Verification and checking of accounts 
through audit and inspection bureau. 

S. Accruement of revenues on the general 
t)ooks of the city where they will always be 
evident as obligations due the city until paid. 

The inauguration of the detailed workings 
of the new system has progressed without 
friction, and it is hoped that it will prove an 
advantage to the city government. It is too 
early, however, to state the specific benefits 
to be derived from it. 

DEPARTMENT OF ELECTRICITY. 

An interesting lesson in municipal owner- 
ship is revealed in the report of the Depart- 
ment of Electricity. 

The duties of this department are sirictly 
of a public service character; they include 
the operation of the Fire Alarm and Police 



Telegraph, Gas Lighting and operation of 
the Municipal Electric Lighting System. 

In wovk of this character a shortage in 
finances is made more apparent tlian in almost 
any other branch of the public service. Not- 
withstanding the fact that less money was 
available for street lighting purposes' during 
the past year than in preceding years, the 
service was extended and better results at a 
l"ss cost secured, as comparison with previ- 
ous years will show. 

During the year the city maintained upon 
the streets 25,000 gas lamps, the gas for which 
during the last half of the year was supplied 
without charge by the Gas Company, 4,700 
gasoline lamps, 652 rented arc lamps, and 
operated from its own plants 4,305 arc lamps, 
producing approximately 10,808,000 candle 
power of light at a total cost of 1762,367. The 
entire cost of rented lamps of all kinds, in- 
cluding the operation of 4,305 arc lamps of 
the municipal system, is $149,862 less than it 
cost the city in 1865 for lighting, while over 
three times as much effective light is pro- 
duced. In this comparison allowance has 
been made for free gas for six months of 1901. 

The operation of the municipal lighting 
system has been successful, and the decrease 
in the cost of operation, notwithstanding the 
increased cost of coal and other supplies, 
should convince those who may have been 
sceptical that the best investment the city 
can make is to increase the number of its 
municipal plants. During the past year the 
total cost of operating the plants was $247,- 
472.00, while to have rented the lamps from 
private companies would have cost $503,000.00. 

Since 1895 the lighting plants have been 
increased as follows: 

During 1895, from 1,108 to 1,116 lamps. 
During 1896, from 1,116 to 1,140 lamps. 
During 1897, from 1,140 to 1,438 lamps. 
During 1898, from 1,438 to 2,363 lamps. 
During 1899, from 2,263 to 3,502 lamps. 
During 1900, from 3,502 to 4,239 lamps. 
During 1901, from 4,239 to 4,305 lamps. 

The total cost of increasing the plants from 



April 7,J 



[\w^ 



1,140 lights to 4,305 licriits has been 1672,- 
018.27. 

The cost per light has been satisfactorily 
reduced, and at the same time valuable im- 
provements have been made in the equip- 
ments. The cost for each year is as follows : 

Average cost per lamp for year 1895. . .195 76 
Average cost per lamp for year 1896. . . 96 40 
Average cost per lamp for year 1897. . . 90 65 
Average cost per lamp for year 1898. . , 65 52 
Average cost per lamp for year 1899-.. 55 93 
Average cost per lamp for year 1900. . . 60 98 
Average cost per lamp for year 1901. . . 57 48 

To the cost for the year 1901, ha^ been 
added a charge of over 15.00 per light, which 
amount has been expended in providing for 
depreciation and improvements in the ma- 
chinery and improvements. 

The Fire Alarm and Police Telegraph Sys- 
tems have been considerably extended and 
the entire office equipped with modern appar- 
atus, placing it in keeping with the service 
required. 

The Electrical Inspection Bureau has re- 
quired numerous improvements to be made 
in old installations, as well as new, and the 
effect has been largely to decrease the loss in 
fires ascribed to electrical causes. The total 
4ess was 13,735.00 from flres of electrical origin 
while from lighting the loss was $29,200.00. 

CIVIL SERVICE. 

Records of the proceedings of the Civil Ser- 
vice Commission show that splendid progress 
has been made in firmly establishing the 
merit system under the city government. This 
progress is largely due to the conscientious 
work of the commission and to the wholesome 
effect produced by the decisions of the courts, 
which in every particular have maintained 
the authority of the commission and the 
supremacy of the civil service law. The 
merit system conditions are such now that no 
one in Chicago, whether spoilsman or re- 
.forraer, any longer questions the fact that 
civil service is a fixture, an institution that is 
here to stay. 



DEPARTMENT OF SUPPLIES. 

The results in the Department of Suppiies 
emphasizes the wisdom of creating it. The 
business transacted by this departmtsnt. 
during the year 1901 involved the expenditure 
of $649,201.08, an increase of $41,922.50 over 
the amount expended during the previous 
year. There were issued by the Business 
Agent 18,792 orders for material, supplies, 
and repair work, an increase of 628 over the 
number issued in the year 1900. The depart- 
ment maintains a warehouse and carries in 
stock such supplies as are in regular and 
constant use. Deliveries are made in small 
lots to the several departments as required. 
Stationary and office supplies are delivered 
from stock carried in the City Hall. A new 
feature o£ the business of the Department of 
Supplies is the hanxlling of uniform cloth for 
policemen and firemen. The material i& 
purchased under contract and is sold for 
cash. The effect of this plan is to enaWe 
the city's uniformed men to obtain garments 
of superior quality at low cost. 

FJRE DEPARTMENT. 

The Fire Department has in the past ye r- 
added to its glories most signally. The de- 
partment responded to 8,094 alarms, an in- 
crease of 899 over the previous year, and ex- 
tinguished 6,136 fires, an increase of 
633 over the previous year. The 
total valuation of the property involved 
was 1133,195,220, which was insured tor 
183,079,743, and on which the total fire loss 
was $4,296,433. The casualities to citizens at 
fires consisted of 103 injured and 45 killed, 
and the number of persons in peril rescued 
by members of the department amounted to 
184. These figures give but poor conception 
of the efficiency and the heroism displayed 
throughout the year. 

Satisfactory progress has been made i» 
track elevation as shown in the elevation of 
the joint work between the Chicago and 
Alton Railroad Company, the Chicago, Madi- 
son and Northern Railroad Company, and

the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway 
Company, under ordinance passed by the 
City Council, May 22, 1899, from the bridge 
-across the south branch at Bridgeport to a 
point west of Wallace street, a distance of 
a little more than 5.25 miles of main track 
sind about 15.0 miles of other tracks, eliminat- 
ing 13 grade crossings by subways, at an 
•estimated cost of about $1,200,000.00. This 
work was commenced April 26, 1901, and 
continued until the work was stopped by the 
Inclemency of the weather aboat December 
19th. 

The Chicago and Western Indiana Railroad 
Company have commenced preparation for the 
elevation of their roadbed and tracks under 
ordinance of October 23, 1899, by the con- 
struction of retaining walls and foundations 
for the abutment walls of the subways; they 
•have expended about 1325,000 in this work, and 
as the retaining walls have been constructed 
along their right of way from Seventy-second 
istreet to Forty-ninth street, they will com- 
mence early in the spring of 1902 to fill in the 
embankments and elevate their tracks, and I 
have no doubt but they will have the tracks 
"between the points mentioned elevated by the 
fall of 1902. 

Ordinances have been passed during the 
jyear 1901 for the elevation of 137.4 miles of 
.-all tracks, eliminating eighty-six grade cross- 
ings by subway, at an estimated cost of 
$5,050,000.00. Plans have been submitted and 
^approved for commencing the work of eleva- 
tion under some of the ordinances passed by 
the City Council in UOl, nd we expect a 
large amount of work to be done in the ele- 
vation of railroad beds and tracks this year. 

CORPORATION COUNSEl/S OFFICE. 

The office of the Corporation Counsel has 
cluring the past year well maintained its high 
-standard of efficiency. The ever increasing 
volume of business has received adequate at- 
tention. In particular matters decisions have 
been obtained and points won of great ad- 
vantage to the city both in the administration 



of its affairs, in the protection of its great 
property interests and in its dealings with the . 
public service corporations. The departments 
of the city government have at all times re- . 
ceived the benefit of careful legal advice in 
the conduct of their business. I may enum- 
erate a few of the most important cases upon 
which the labor of the department has been 
engaged. 

Last summer, in response to a request from, 
the City Council, the Corporation Counsel 
gave an opinion that the Chicago Telephone 
Company must strictly live up to the terms of 
the city ordinance under which it operated by 
giving to its customers the mostimproved ser- 
vice at the fixed rate of 1125.00, provided by 
the ordinance, and that the charge for this 
service of $175.00 was an illegal exaction. 
This ordinance had in this way been violated 
by the company for years, and large sums of 
money wrongfully extorted from the public. 
Suit was brought to test the validity of this 
opinion. Judge Tuley, in a decision, the re- 
sult of which in money to the people of Chi- 
cago can be estimated only in hundreds of 
thousands of dollars, sustained the Corpora- 
tion Counsel in every respect. 

In the Eisendrath and Shirk cases the Su- 
preme Court has sustained the right of the 
public to important portions of Sangamon 
street and Michigan avenue against the en- 
croachments of adjoining property owners. 

In the Krause case the law department 
has succeeded in obtaining a final decision of 
the Supreme Court to the effect that all the 
provisions of the Hyde Fark liquor ordi- 
nances are to-day in full force. In the more 
recent Boetter case the Supreme Court has 
extended the construction and application of 
the local^option ordinances of the same sec- 
tion of the city so as even to go beyond the 
demands of the people of Hyde Park. These 
two decisions have set the high water mark 
in the persistent effort of this administration 
to keep the city's faith with the annexed 
districts.

[1902 



The due authority of the Mayor and Chiel 
of Police has been upheld by Judge Tuley 
against the attenopts of certain subordinate 
members of the Police Department to foriii 
an illegal association which would be destruc- 
tive of the morale and discipline of the force. 

On the other hand the welfare of the indi- 
vidual police ofHcer has been cared for and 
safeguarded by the decision of the Appellate 
Court in the Connell case, holding unlawful 
those transactions by which the necessities 
of members of the Police Department and 
other city employes have been traded upon 
through the purchase, at usurious rates, of 
their unearned wages. 

Judge Grosscup has recently sustained, in 
the United States Circuit Court, the position 
©f the Law Department that the City Council 
has the power to compel the gas companies to 
furnish gas at reasonable rates. 

Determined efforts have been made by the 
Corporation Counsel to compel the State 
Board of Equalization to assess the property 
and franchises of corporations in accordance 
with law at their fair value. This is a new 
move which opens up prospects of greater 
revenue to all the taxing bodies of this coun- 
ty. For many years the attitude of the State 
Board of Equalization toward the taxation of 
corporate property and franchises has frus- 
trated every attempt t© enforce the law. A 
suit has been instituted and is now pending 
n Sangamon County, the result of which 
will be, it is hoped, the eradication of this 
great evil. 

Another evil which the Law Department 
deserves great credit for ending is the habit 
of the Town Collectors to withhold from the 
city its share of the taxes received by the^ 
Town Collectors before their books are turned 
over to the County Collector. This year, the 
institution of mandamus suits against delin- 
quent Collectors has forced them to pay to 
the city over 13,600,000.00, which otherwise 
would have been held back by the Collectors 
to the latest moment possible. The imme- 



diate use of this money by the city in the 
payment of ©utstanding interest- bearing tax 
warrants has enabled it to effect a definite 
saving. 

A great victory has been recently won in 
the decision of Judge Ball that the city is au- 
thorized to fix the rate of fare to be charged 
by street railway companies within the city 
limits, and to regulate the glviyig of transfer a 
from one line to another where both lines are' 
owned, leased or operated by the same com- 
pany, and that the city ordinance provid- 
ing for transfer tickets between connect- 
ing lines operated by the same 
corporation applies to the lines of the Chi- 
eago Union Traction Company and the Chi- 
cago Consolidated Traction Company which, 
at the time of the passage of the ordinance, 
were under a separate ownership and man- 
agement. The effect of this decisionjs one 
of great importance to the residents of the 
poorer districts of the city reached only by 
cross-town service. To the people of these 
districts whose employment takes them to 
the center of the city, the saving brought 
about by this decision will be appreciated 
every day. 

The case of Jackson vs. The City is one of 
far reaching importance. In it the question 
raised whether the city is liable to the prop- 
erty owners for damages consequent upon the 
elevation of railroad tracks, brought about 
by the city in the due exercise of its police 
power. The original opinion ©f the Supreme 
Court in this case holding the city liable, 
was, on a rehearing, completely set aside. 
The broad doctrine was laid dowa that where 
the city causes the destruction of public im- 
provements for the purpose of protecting the 
health or safety of its citizens, it is not lia- 
ble to property owners injuriously affected 
by the construction of the improvement. 
The claims against the city arising in similar 
cases amount to over a million dollars. No 
fear is entertained of any serious moditicatiou 
of the court's recent opinion.

[1903 



In the case of Farrell vs. The City, lately 
decided by the Appellate Court, an opinion 
has been handed down justifying the city in 
its resistance to the claiaas of contractors in 
special assessment improvements who hare 
sought by means of a judgment against the 
city to make all tax payers liable for claims 
properly payable only by the owners of prop- 
erty specially benefitted. 

, A comparison between the number of cases 
tried and the opinions rendered by the Cor- 
poration Counsel's office in the years 1896 and 
1901 shows that the work of the department 
has nearly trebled. 

The Special Assessment Law Department 
has done its full share of work in the past 
year. 

The total number of special assessment 
cases wherein judgment of confirmation was 
obtained in 1901 was 766. 

These cases represent judgments amounting 
to about three million dollars. 

Four hundred and thirty-four of these cases 
were contested and fifty-five special assess- 
ment cases were carried to the Supreme 
Court. 

In co-operation with the Comptroller's 
office, the Special Assessment Law Depart- 
ment has put into eoliection 1168,000 of spe- 
cial assessments, which in former administra- 
tions had been improperly stayed or neglected. 
The result of this will be the payment of 
many special assessment bonds and rebates 
long due property owners. 

Along this same line the work of the de- 
partment deserves special notice for the large 
number of supplemental assessments made, 
which will speedily realize nearly a half 
million dollars to pay outstanding and over- 
due claims. 

The management and operation of the 
Water Department afford an interesting 
study to the student of municipal ownership 
and kindred questions. The collections for 
the year amounted to $3,397,928.87, being 
$149,517.51 more than was collected in the 



preceding year. This was accomplished at 
an expense of $11,466.00 less than was ex- 
pended in the preceding year. 

The management of the Engineer's ©ffice, 
the Collector's office, the City Sealer's office, 
the Street Department, and the other branches 
of the city government has been all that 
could be desired considering the financial 
difficulties under which the year's business 
has been done. 

PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT. 

The greatest work now being prosecuted by 
the City of Chicago is the building of a por- 
tion of the intercepting sewer extending 
along the lake shore, from 39th street south- 
erly to about 51st street; thence along Cor- 
nell and Stony Island avenues to 73d street. 
This sewer is a sixteen feet sewer at 39th 
street, gradually decreasing to twelve feet at 
73d street. Tne work was undertaken by the 
City of Chicago by direct labor; that is, the 
city supervising the work and hiring its own 
laborers, brick masons, etc., and buying its 
own material. It was undertaken by direct 
labor owing to the numerous delays, as 
well as the complications arising be- 
tween the city and contractors. In most in- 
stances of contract work after the completion 
of the work, large extras were claimed 
and frequently obtained by the contractors 
through the medium of the courts. The 
city at present is comple'lng on an average 
sixty feet a day, at a cost of about three dol- 
lars a foot less than the estimated cost of said 
work, which was forty-six dollars per lineal 
foot. The first brick on this work was laid 
June 15, 1901; work was prosecuted continu 
ously until December 31, 1901, when the 
weather necessitated shutting down. At the 
present time work is being carried on from 
two points. There has been completed 4,011 
feet of sewer, and the full section from 39th 
to 63d streets will be completed about De- 
cember 31, 1902. All employes on this work 
are drawn through the civil service, and the 
progress and economy shown as compared 



— 1

with the work formerly done and now being 
done by contractors is, in my opinion, a 
demonstration that work properly handled by 
direct labor by a corporation such as the City 
of Chicago is to the best interests of the 
I city. 

The opening of the Springfield Avenue 
Pumping Station in the early part of 1901 
added a much needed supply of water to the 
West Division of the city. This and the 
Central Park Avenue Pumping Stations are 
the most modern and best equipped pumping 
stations in the country. There was an aver- 
age daily increase in the pumping during the 
year of 20,223,819 gallons or a yearly increase 
of 7,400,854,972 gallons, and notwithstanding 
this great increase in pumping there was 2,294 
tons less of coal used than in the previous 
year. The city is now constructing four 
bridges of the bascule type, at Clybourn 
place, Division street (canal). Division street 
(river) and 95th street, on a new design made 
by the city, which will save considerable 
sums of money in the way of royalties, opera- 
tion, etc. The Clybourn Place Bridge will 
be open within a very few weeks, and at the 
present time has been suflSeiently operated to 
demonstrate that the structure is a complete 
success. /

Mayor's Office. [ 
April 2; St, 1902. \ 

To the Honorable, the City Cou)icU: 

Gentlemen — It has been suggested to me 
that an ordinance be parsed raising the license 
of cab drivers in this city from 82.50 to 810 
per year. This ordinance is favored. I learn, 
by one of the local cabmen's unions and I am 
told is supported by the other organization 
as well as by the independent cabmen. Its 



April 21, 



46 



[1902 



passage, these gentlemen think, Avill result in 
minimizing the robberies committed either by 
or with the connivance of cabmen and in ad- 
dition will result in some increase in the city 
revenue. 

The ordinance should be passed prior to 
May 1st, if it is to be passed at all, in order 
that it may be in force when the time for 
renewal of licenses comes around. I would 
theref©re respectfully suggest tne reference 
of the subject matter to your Committee on 
License with instructions to report at the 
next regular meeting of your Honorable Body 
and that the ordinance when reported be 
made a special ordinance for next Monday 
night at 8.30 p. m. 

Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, 

3Iayoi\ 

Which was, on motion, duly concurred in 
and referred to the Committee on License. 



The following communication: 

Mayor's Office, ) 
April 21st, 1902. \ 

To the Honorable, the Ciiy Coaiwil: 

.. Gentlemen — The suggestion has been 
made to me by Charles C. Breyer, President 
of the Board of Examining Plumbers, that 1 
call the attention of your Honorable Body to 
the advisability of having passed an ordi- 
nance requiring all Master Plumbers to pay 
an annual license fee to the city in addition 
to the 15.00 license fee now paid to the city 
for State certificates. The former ordinance 
licensing plumbers wa^ declared illegal by 
the courts a year oi* two ago and sinee then 
the only charge upon them is the renewal fee 
for their State certificates. I am advised 
that an ordinance of this character would 
meet with the approval of the Master Plumb- 
ers of this city. 

I would therefore respectfully ask that this 
subject matter be referred to your Committee 
on License with instructions that the matter 
be given early consideration and that an ordi- 
nance along these lines be reported to your 
Honorable Body. 

Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, 

Maxjor.

License.
